WATCH: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Smile as They Touch Down in Australia for First Official Royal Tour

PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle have touched down in Sydney for the first leg of their 16-day tour of Australia and the South Pacific.

The pair held hands and smiled as they arrived Down Under, accompanied by a ten-man entourage for their first international tour as a couple. 

The couple were met by warm crowds in Sydney

Despite the long-haul flight – which saw the couple briefly stopover in Singapore – the Duke and Duchess of Sussex looked fresh and excited for their tour as they were greeted by excited fans.

But Meghan sparked a flurry of pregnancy rumours, clutching purple folders in front of her stomach as she walked hand in hand with her husband.

Eagle-eyed fans were quick to speculate with Meghan’s latest appearance – just days after similar rumours were sparked when the former American actress wore a loose-fitting coat to Princess Eugenie’s wedding. 

Meghan, who has never been to Australia before, beamed as she was ushered into a car with Prince Harry.
